Consent Decision-Making With Heart: A Webinar Introduction to Sociocracy

August 31, 2022 - online

How can you self-organize to get things done, and avoid the traps of power-over that permeate so many organizations? How can you make decisions using power-with, and where everyone’s voice counts? How can you include the heart in decision-making?

Join this experiential session on the basics of the Sociocratic Circle-organization Method (SCM), including how to make decisions and how to empower and connect teams.

Organizations often say they want to involve people in decisions. When they succeed in doing that, they are likely to get more ideas and have a more engaged workforce. But without a transparent structure for people having a voice, disappointments, frustration, resentment, or just plain resignation can set in. People can lose heart!

“Sociocracy is the best approach to organizational design that I have seen in twenty-five years of consulting.”
– Ira Chaleff, Founder and President of Executive Coaching & Consulting Associates, named one of the 100 best minds on leadership by
Leadership Excellence magazine.

The SCM is a whole-systems approach to collaborative decision-making, project management, and organizational governance. The approach creates a more inclusive, effective, self-managing culture, where good ideas can come from any part of the organization. Many types and sizes of companies and organizations worldwide use the method – in the for-profit and nonprofit sectors, education, government, co-operatives, and healthcare.

In this webinar, we’ll engage in small-group exercises and a demonstration so everyone can experience some meeting processes of the SCM. You will learn how to (a) clarify who decides what, (b) make collaborative decisions with everyone’s input — without taking all day and all night — and (c) create productive and enjoyable meetings that can hold heartful discussions. You will have new tools you can use immediately. And you’ll get a preview of our six-week online training that begins in September.
